September 11, 2001.  We all know what happened ten years ago.  We all know how America and New York recovered.  We all know the role sports, particularly baseball, played in that recovery.

The Mets were planning on honoring the men and women serving the country and also having a bit of a tribute to the 2001 team by wearing hats of the NYPD and FDNY during tonight's game.  However, MLB is now saying the Mets will not be allowed to do that.  They will simply be allowed to wear the hats during batting practice.

The 2001 team was told they were not allowed to wear the hats. They wore them anyway.  Doing the same tonight would be quite the salute.
